Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Traffic Control Experiment Harringay, 1963

In 1963 Harringay was the site for a pioneering new approach to traffic control.

Transport Minister Ernest Marples visits Harringay to launch the pedestrian crossing experiment.

See this photo for more links on what was going on.

Many thanks to Rodney for pointing this video out to me.

This video was originally published on HoL in 2010, but I have republished due to racist comments being on the original YouTube posting. I have pasted the other original comments to the video below.

I remember when the stick-men started to ‘cross the road.’ They were bright blue and sped up towards the end of the crossing time.
